Diverse individuals making collective impact

Meet our team

We’re a diverse team that’s proud to bring our lived experiences to our work every day. As individuals, we’re specialists in ethnography, film, graphic design, strategy and business. And as a collective, we’re passionate about people: what they want, what they need, and what they care about.  

Where our name comes from

Openbox takes its name from the story of Henry “Box” Brown, a man who escaped slavery in 1849 by mailing himself to freedom. Henry used one nationally-run system—the US Postal Service—to subvert another: the nationally-oppressive system of slavery. We at Openbox remain in awe of his creative bravery, and his inspiring life story.
